Winter Storm Warning

Issued at 18:10 Sunday 20 January 2019

Summary

Hazardous winter conditions are expected. A strong winter storm will track across the Maritimes tonight. Snow at times heavy and blowing snow ahead of this system will change to rain at times heavy this evening. Up to 20 cm of snow is expected across Prince and Queens counties before it changes through ice pellets and freezing rain to rain this evening. Strong easterly winds gusting to 80 km/h will likely give extensive blowing snow before the precipitation changeover. Even stronger southerly winds gusting to 90 km/h are expected with the rain and milder temperatures tonight and as such a wind warning is now in effect for the Island. The accumulated snow on the frozen ground combined with the expected rainfall of at least 20 mm and milder temperatures tonight followed by rapidly falling temperatures with risk of freezing rain and flash freeze conditions on Monday could lead to treacherous conditions. ### Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays. Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to PEstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #PEStorm.
